Top ‘O the morning to you!!! This Healthy Shamrock Shake recipe goes out to all of my virtual friends who have a shamrock shake addict in your life. My husband is that guy. You know the one I’m talking about. Literally the first day he sees a sign outside of the golden arches advertising the arrival of said beverage, he has to have one.

I don’t understand it {and never will}, but since my main man loves those shakes, and I love him, I made it my mission to create this Healthy Shamrock Shake recipe. My goal: to save Ritch from making too many trips to that infamous chain this March.

In order to make a Healthy Shamrock Shake that my husband would still love, I knew I couldn’t use bananas. The guy has a super taster for anything that contains banana {and coconut for that matter} and I knew if he got one whiff of a banana the entire experience would be ruined for him. So, I used vanilla honey Greek yogurt and 2% milk for the base.

I had three main objectives in creating this Healthy Shamrock Shake, it had to be 1) creamy. 2) Green. and 3) minty! The addition of avocado, spinach and fresh mint leaves totally worked together to achieve every one of those goals in a completely natural and healthy way! So I feel good about my husband and kids enjoying this green treat! {Instead of secretly being horrified about what they are putting into their bodies}!

Healthy Shamrock Shake: Substitutions

There are a few easy ways to change up this Healthy Shamrock Shake to fit your dietary needs!

Greek Yogurt/Milk:  If you avoid dairy, you can easily substitute a dairy-free yogurt {like So Delicious} and almond or coconut milk to make this dairy-free! I recommend using honey or vanilla flavored yogurt. If you use plain yogurt, you will need to increase the amount of honey so that this Healthy Shamrock Shake is still sweet enough!

Honey: Feel free to use any liquid sweetener of your choice. Honey is by far my favorite!
